Canadian Chamber of Commerce delegation meets Haryana CM
Appreciating the proactive and investor-friendly approach of the State Government, Canada has evinced keen interest in investing and catalyzing investments in Haryana.
A delegation of the Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC), led by President, Kanwar Dhanjal, called on Chief Minister, Manohar Lal and invited him and officers of the State Government to visit Canada for furthering the relationship and exploring investment opportunities in Canada.
Stating that his Government would provide all possible facilitation to investors, the Chief Minister laid emphasis on such projects and sectors as would not only generate investments but also create employment avenues and ensure balanced growth of the State.
A mechanism should be put in place to ensure continuous dialogue between the two sides. Being priority sectors, skill development and agro and food processing offered great potential in Haryana. The State is keen on supporting and promoting the agriculture sector by way of assured pricing and development of the food processing sector, he added.
Dhanjal said the ICCC was a non-profit, non-partisan organisation, founded more than four decades ago. Its mission includes promoting business, professional, and general well-being of Indo-Canadians; creating positive awareness of high degree of contribution of the Indo-Canadian business and professional community; facilitating business and trade opportunities between Canada and India, and Indian diaspora throughout the world.
Delegates from diverse sectors representing food processing, information technology, hospitality, legal services, skill development, interacted and exchanged views regarding avenues for investments and joint-business opportunities. They also mentioned some of the areas where expertise from Canada in skill development, urban farming and agro and food processing can be effectively utilised in the State.
Principal Secretary, Industries, Sudhir Rajpal, briefed the delegates about various initiatives taken by the state government and emphasized that there was great scope for MSME investments in Haryana, as they constituted a major source of employment.
Chairman, Foreign Investment and NRI Cell, Ashwin Johar, said the State was keen on foreign investments in general and by NRIs in particular, as these would be mutually beneficial and rewarding. Organisations like HAFED can explore Canada as a potential market for its products, he added.
